Interview with Criticalmass

I had an exciting opportunity to spend some time with Criticalmass at NAMM 2014. Not only did their singer, Bobby Anderson, pick up a sponsor, these guys “ROCK” and have a heart of pure gold. To be candid, it doesn’t hurt that they got me in to see The Black Label Society; WOW if you EVER have the chance to see Zakk Wylde… JUST GO! It had to be the most incredible concert I saw all year, and it could not have been “more fun” than to be with these guys.

There has been “a lot a stir” in The Criticalmass Camp this year, they will be performing at Operation Soulshine on March 22nd, the show is 7-2am at The PCH Club 6285 E. Pacific Coast Highway, Long Beach, CA 90803.
